It looks to be as good as Band of Brothers. hope your hub can give it a look. Most of these don't pain me as desert footage does or would.

Rough show tonight. Got me jittery. Hope I sleep ok tonight. Last week caused a long night. Realistic and the emotion is there as I recall it. Not the same location of course but the feelings are there. Sadness, apathy, anger, fear, nervous laughter.....

Well, I watched the last 2 episodes of Pacific. It has taken me this long to build up my courage to watch them. The last few have been taxing on me. My wife was hear with me and the kids in bed. Very anxious and some tears. Lot of memories come up but made it. My therapy involves me to stop avoiding things so I thought it important to push through. What a story. I am not disappointed.
